Peg Whiskey finds some rare Port Dundas Distillery Whiskey with their latest offering
Indie set up Peg Whiskey have been gathering a lot of attention in recent months. Their trio of releases in the second half of 2020 were greeted with general acclaim. A friendly price point and a fine dram, what’s not to like.
The second official single cask Limited Edition release from Peg Whisky is a magnificent 11 year old Single Grain Whisky, distilled at the Port Dundas distillery from the Lowland region, which closed back in 2010.
After a decade away Peg Whiskey has returned Port Dundas albeit only a limited release of 274 bottles available worldwide.
This is a cask strength whiskey, non-chill filtered and the slightly pale colour is a very welcome rejoinder to the increasingly caramel coloured output of some ‘leading’ distillers and bottlers.
Tasting Notes & Details
Glass: TheWhiskeyRecord Tasting Glass
Butterscotch and toffee. A warm nose to begin followed by mown grass and a zesty fruity hint, maybe melon.
A delight here. Chewy and creamy with lots of sweat treats to begin before peppery, even chili notes hit. This lays over a pleasant smokiness.
Balanced well rounded with spices, fruits, and smoke lingering over wood
